Non-believers should read The Chosen, a UC Berkeley sociologist’s exhaustive study of college admissions.  His findings showed there was no measurable difference between the outcomes of students who attended the most selective schools and those who attended any of over a hundred schools that accepted more of their applicants. The graduates of famous colleges don’t get better paying jobs, they aren’t happier, they aren’t more successful, their lives aren’t any better, etc.
